Stunning cinematography highlights this Oscar-nominated, gripping, heart-tugging, heartwarming, family-oriented, star-studded (David Thewlis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Toby Kebbell, et al.), 150-minute Steven Spielberg film, which is adapted from Michael Morpurgo's novel and a Tony-award-winning play, about the harrowing journey and adventures of a spirited, red-bay thoroughbred horse when it is chosen in 1914 by a kindhearted British Army captain (Tom Hiddleston) to serve as his steed on the battlefield in France during World War I after being raised and trained by a devoted, heartbroken English teenager (Jeremy Irvine), who lives with his hardworking mother (Emily Watson) and hard-drinking father (Peter Mullan) on a small farm in Devon, and ends ups in the hands of numerous caretakers, including a young French girl (Cecline Buckens) and her grandfather (Niels Arestrup), two AWOL German soldiers and brothers (David Kross and Leonard Carow), and a well-intentioned Nazi horse master (Nicolas Bro), until eventually finding its way home.
